    ...Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton stated that had she known now what she knew at the time she voted for military intervention in Iraq, she would not have voted to commit American troops to Operation Iraqi Freedom...Senator Clinton, as have so many of her fellow Democratic Congress members who voted in favor of the war way-back-when, now claims conversion to the anti-war side in a manner comparable to Paul’s blinding on the road to Damascus...Those Democrats who voted in favor of committing American troops to Operation Iraqi Freedom and who now have jumped on the Peace Train have a huge problem:...

If you don't, you get stuck in IRQQ. The horse's ass doesn't know we have volunteer army. That's what he and his fellow democrats think of our troops. The senator is visiting Philadelphia on Wednesday evening to raise money for Bob Casey. At that time Senator Santorum will join war veterans in rallying support of our strong and...

    THOSE EVIL AMERICAN TROOPS FRIGHTENING THOSE POOR IRAQIS Yesterday we noted that John Kerry was resorting to his old ways; bashing our men and women in uniform. On last Sunday's Face the Nation Kerry had this to say about the actions of American troops in Iraq: " ..... there is no reason, Bob, that young American soldiers need to be going into the homes of Iraqis in the dead of night, terrorizing kids and children, you know, women ...." Well, there you go. Now we have the Democratic Presidential candidate, The Poodle, applying the "T" word to our own troops...

    I recently traveled to Iraq where I was proud to visit some of America's most remarkable young men and women. I wish I was as proud about what is happening in Washington, where ``supporting the troops'' is often confused with simply supporting the administration's policies. Sometimes supporting the troops means challenging the policies that put them in harm's way or harm the families who pray for their safe return. It also means Congress has a special responsibility to our troops - both in the field and at home. Our troops must have every tool they need to succeed. Every recent...

    ... "Senator Kerry has offered to meet privately with President Bush to discuss foreign policy before Bush flies abroad next week and has meetings with key European leaders. Kerry..." No, I'm not kidding. Kerry actually called Bush and said he "offered to get together with him to discuss foreign affairs." I guess because Kerry just got back from there, and Kerry wanted to talk with Bush. "The offer has fallen on deaf ears at the White House.

    'WASHINGTON - Sen. John F. Kerry's brash offer to meet privately with former foe President Bush [related, bio] to discuss foreign policy before Bush's meetings abroad next week with key European leaders has apparently fallen on deaf ears at the White House. ``We've offered to have Sen. Kerry (D-Mass.) meet with President Bush to discuss his trip to Iraq, if the White House is interested,'' Kerry spokesman David Wade said yesterday. ``There are many areas where genuine bipartisanship would make a difference in leading our country forward, whether in national security or children's health care.'' The White House declined comment...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democratic Sen. John Kerry, whose baffling explanation of votes on Iraq war funding hurt his 2004 White House bid, said on Tuesday he would back President Bush's new $81.9 billion request for Iraq and Afghanistan. "I think we're in a very different situation," Kerry told reporters. "I'm going to vote for this ... I think this money is important to our being successful and to the completion of the process." The Massachusetts senator, who failed in his bid to unseat Bush last November in an election focused on national security, defended his decision to not back the...

    flippin' again 02/15 05:13 PM John Kerry has signaled his support for President Bush’s $81.9B Iraq/Afghanistan/tsunami funding request. And just to “clarify,” Kerry spoke of his previous vote against military funding: “Mine was the right vote at the time and I wouldn't change it if we went back to that point in time because it was the right vote.” Whether it’s concerning his Vietnam record or funding for U.S. troops, Kerry has settled on his response to questions concerning his campaign’s setbacks. Think of it as his all-purpose “aloha” response: “Should we have done a better job, could I have...

    US Senator John Kerry said Saturday after talks with Syrian President Bashar Assad he is hopeful that strained US-Syrian relations can be improved. Assad in return assured Kerry he is interested in dialogue with Washington. The former Democratic presidential candidate, who arrived in Damascus Friday, met for two hours with Assad before meeting separately with Foreign Minister Farouk a-Sharaa. The talks centered on the situation in Iraq and how to prevent militants from entering Iraq through Syria. "I think we found a great deal of areas of mutual interest, some common concerns and some possibilities for initiatives that could be...

    DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) - Former Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry met Saturday with Syria's president and said he was hopeful that strained U.S.-Syrian relations could be improved, provided Washington seized "a moment of opportunity" currently available in the Middle East. The United States has accused Syria of doing too little to stop insurgents from infiltrating into Iraq to attack coalition forces. Washington also has imposed sanctions on Damascus, accusing it of seeking weapons of mass destruction and hosting Palestinian groups Washington deems to be terrorist organizations. Syria denies the accusations but says it cannot fully control its long, porous border...

Kerry cheered in Baghdad, decries Bush team's 'blunders' Once criticized for war stance, he says force alone won't win - Borzou Daragahi, Chronicle Foreign Service Thursday, January 6, 2005 Baghdad -- Sen. John Kerry, whose seemingly shifting positions on the U.S. war in Iraq plagued him throughout his presidential campaign, came to this war- torn capital Wednesday to see for himself whether the country was moving toward stability or deeper into chaos.

    The evidence continues to mount. More and more it seems we can assume that the Democrats are just simply slow learners, perhaps incredibly so? After proving he was a disastrously weak candidate for president, John Kerry heads off to Iraq and picks up his Bush-bashing right where he left off in his campaign. Does Kerry think he won the election? It is unbelievable that this character is still talking about how Bush "botched" the Iraq War..........and even worse, he's saying these things to our guys in the field. Al Jazeera, the insurgent murderers, and John Kerry team up to bash...

    Visiting with U.S. troops in Baghdad on Thursday, failed presidential candidate John Kerry trashed Commander-in-chief George Bush for making "horrendous judgments" and "unbelievable blunders" that have undermined the war effort. In a series of demoralizing comments first reported by the San Francisco Chronicle, the defeated Democrat griped, "What is sad about what's happening here now is that so much of it is a process of catching up from the enormous miscalculations and wrong judgments made in the beginning." Kerry said that because of the Bush administration's mistakes, "the job has been made enormously harder." Among the errors cited by the...

    Well, okay I made the last part up. I guess Kerry doesn't realize yet that his vision of the war on terrorism was invalidated by last month's election. PARTIAL EXCERPT: Senator John F. Kerry, who rooted his unsuccessful presidential campaign in an alternate vision of the Iraqi occupation, will visit that nation next month during a swing through the Middle East. The Massachusetts Democrat is to meet with National Guard troops from Massachusetts, other active-duty armed forces personnel, and others during the tour. The dates of his travel, the length of his stay, and his exact itinerary were being withheld...

    WASHINGTON - Former Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry (news - web sites) will travel to Iraq (news - web sites) next month as the war-torn country prepares for elections. The Massachusetts senator, who lost his bid for the presidency in November, is expected to visit several Middle East countries, with the focus on the situation in Iraq and the war on terror. A decorated Vietnam War veteran, Kerry also plans to meet with U.S. troops, including some from Massachusetts, to thank them for their services, spokeswoman April Boyd said Thursday. During the campaign, Kerry criticized President Bush (news - web...

    On the afternoon of Aug. 9, John F. Kerry stood on the lip of the Grand Canyon, about to make one of the biggest mistakes of his three-year quest for the presidency. A stiff wind was blowing across the canyon, and Kerry, whose hearing was damaged by gun blasts in Vietnam, had trouble understanding some of the questions being thrown his way. But he pressed on, coughing from the pollen blowing on the breeze. Would Kerry have voted to authorize the use of force in Iraq, one reporter asked, even if he knew then that Iraq didn't have weapons of...

    A reader writes to National Review's Clifford May to remind him that eight Marines were killed in Iraq in the last 48 hours and so were some Army soldiers. There are Zarqawi and other terrorists, some related to Al Quaeda, and some just Party of Return Baathists, who are doing every thing they can to influence our elections and policy by killing our troops. The Kerryites love to call Iraq a mess but they can never see how much bigger a mess it might have been if we had followed Kerry's advice, waited to 2006 or 2007 when Saddam was...
